Have you tried vinegar and water? My daughter uses Windex on her Silestone countertop which is dark. Maybe one of those with the microfiber will help. ( Or a soft clean cotton cloth).

Yes, yes they do.

When they are clean, of course.

While the radiance finish will add to the option cost, it does reflect the light which makes my trailer look even roomier.

That kitchen looks really good, Karen. I order snap caps all the time since I've been restoring Scamps but the plastic paint would work well too. It will cost $1.20 to order the black ones and they do have some chrome ones that might look nice too. Screw Caps & Screw Covers by PRO-DEC
Actually, I found 6 in my snap cap can from our liquid granite countertops we did in our 17b so I'll only need 6.
I did pass a suggestion on to ETI that they order in some black snap caps since there seem to be a lot ordering blacks n grays lately.

Hi Karen,
I hope I'll get a chance to see your trailer - it sure looks great .... and talk about our designs and ideas. You are so grounded!
